Kay O'Neil is the author of The Birth of Kerry's Place, which tells the story of the largest provider of services and support for people with ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder) in Canada. Named after her sister, Kerry's Place was born out of the frustration and determination of a small group of concerned parents who were desperate to change the way people with Autism were supported in the community. Please join us for this inspiring evening. Community groups which provide support and services for children and adults with developmental and intellectual disabilities will be on hand to answer questions and to provide information.

How to Get Published: an editor and an agent tell all

If you've ever dreamed of becoming a published author, this workshop is for you. We'll cover everything from getting started to getting an agent, from getting your short pieces published  to finding a book publisher, from writing a query letter to writing what the publishers want. Bring your questions. Come and get ready to be published. Special option: participants are invited to bring a draft of a query letter you might use to interest an agent or publisher in your book. You don't need to bring anything, but if you do, three copies would be helpful.

Workshop leader, Brian Henry, has been a book editor and creative writing instructor for more than 25 years. He publishes Quick Brown Fox, Canada's most popular blog for writers, teaches creative writing at Ryerson U and has led workshops everywhere from Boston to Buffalo and from Sarnia to Saint John. His proudest boast is that he has helped many of his students get their first book published and launch their careers as authors.

Guest speaker, Martha Magor Webb, is a literary agent, director and full partner at Anne McDermid and Associates. Martha represents a growing list of writers, focusing on literary fiction, narrative nonfiction (including memoir and true crime) and ideas-driven nonfiction.
